There is a slick routine aimed at stealing from unwary persons. It’s a gang, usually comprised of three or four members. While the three younger ones, all appearing to be cute and innocent, divert their “mark” (or intended target) with a show of friendliness and fun, the fourth, the eldest of this gang of criminals, sneaks in behind the person’s back to expertly rifle undetected through pockets and bags for any valuables being carried.
